abdominoplasty and liposuction, I been waiting for a long time to get this done, and I’m glad I did because I’m so happy with my results. It’s been 4 weeks since my surgery and I feel awesome,. Staring from the first day I went to the Aesthetic Associates Centre , they were amazing nice to me . Went I meet dr Shatkin I was so nervous but everyone in his office was so nice that it was a pleasure , their kindness and attention was what make me decided I wanted to get it done there , Dr Shatkin was so knowledgeable and kind that I was sold in one visit. On my day of surgery i was nervous until I saw him and he talk to me and my mom that was there with me after talking to him and he ask me and my mom and sister if we had any questions and not to worry I was relax and didn’t even notice went I went to sleep , All I have to said if you thinking about this procedures don’t think twice Dr Shatkin it’s the one you want to go to. To this day, All have to said I haven’t had any mayor pains on

Dr. Shatkin is a very skilled surgeon, personable and down to earth. He makes you feel like you are his only patient. Excellent results. His office staff is also very friendly. And his nurse Kathy, who has worked with bottle h Dr. Shatkin and his father, is wonderful. So supportive, during surgery and in office visits.
